Excellent. Wish it had included pick at Senate and House chambers but all n all great value. Our guide Nick was the best. It's great to see someone who so enjoys their work. Nich was extremely knowledgeable and a true professional. For the Capital tour we had Sophia who was also very good and I think she knew every person working in the Capital. Highly recommend this tour. Oh yeah our driver Tony was also great.
We took this tour on the first day of our 3 week holiday in the Washington region, and it was a great way to orientate ourselves with the city. Our driver Tony and guide Nick were really excellent. The tour was both informal and informative, which is exactly what we wanted. Nick had a great sense of humour too, and was great at answering questions. We were looked after well, particularly with water! This was very welcome, as the tour lasted the full day, and it was unseasonably hot for the time of year.
Thanks for a great day! It was very memorable! :-
My fit bit was counting away. We got our exercise in plus bus rides and boat ride. The Capitol was wonderful with very short line. We saw lots of monuments and I was happy to see FDR which I had never seen before. Nick was a wonderful guide as was the new bus driver. Nick kept us laughing.
A very good day out. Nick was the guide and was very courteous, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We started off at the Houses of Congress which includes a short tour. Security is tight and you should be pe prepared for airport standards. So do not take liquids, expensive perfumes and gels etc. you will have to bin them or not enter there is no exceptions. We did all the stops on the tour and Nick was knowledgeable with all the sights along with tit bits of gossip. The lunch was really good U.S. Brits are not used to such large portions. We had a massive sandwich freshly made in front of you a packet of crisps a drink and if we remember correctly a chocolate bar. We did most of the war memorials and famous statues learning along the way with Nick. We finished in the National Archive which was interesting. We did this tour after the night tour, you should do both as the monuments and memorials are different in the day light. Nick said he has been doing this for three years and is still learning. He spends a lot of his spare reading up and researching his tours. All in a a great day out and Nick was excellent.
Even though it rained 90 of our tour it was still an enjoyable experience. We had a great guide name Nick, he was professional, knowledgeable and very funny. The only portion of the tour that did not meet my expectation and was disappointing was the lunch boat ride down the Potomac River, but did get us off our feet for 45 min. If you book this tour try to sit facing the captain on the boat so when he points out topics of interest you won't be looking the wrong way.
Amazing trip, guide very informative and friendly.
Loved Washington and we learnt so much on the trip.
Busy and long day but well worth it.
Tour was well organized, stayed on schedule and covered more than we could have done on our own in 3 days. Our tour guide-Nick- was GREAT! He was very informative, entertaining and very professional. Our driver, Tony, was quiet but always where he was supposed to be.
Nick was an outstanding tour guide. Neal's first day of driving in crazy DC traffic was very impressive. Highly recommend this VIP tour to all visitors who want a comprehensive tour of DC.
Excellent value for money! Highly recommend this trip. Lunch was amazing. Our guide Nick was brilliant, he was entertaining and very knowledgable about the city. Very comfortable bus our driver Tony was great too. Thank you. Very organised and felt well cared for through the day.
It was a long day, but well worthed we saw a lot! We hit a very hot day and they kept us hydrated with complimentary water and our tour guide was great and knowledgeable. All around a great experience, have not been disappointed with Viator so far
It was a excellent and interesting tour. Nick and Tony are made a good job, They are young, funny and gave all the important information.
I can suggest this tour for all the age. I loved it. And the lunch it was excellent too
Nick and Tony made a good job. Nick is full energy and happy person who love history and kept the trip interesting and funny. I can suggest for everyone to book this trip
It and #39;s worth the price
You will see everything what you need to see in the Washington mall
This tour took us to many of the main places in DC that gives a one full day overview of the city. It was well organized, informative and all for a reasonable price. It combines a bus tour, walking tours of many sites as well as a boat ride with lunch on the Potomac. We highly recommend this tour.

I only had a day in D.C. and did not have the energy left to try and get around by myself. I found this tour recommended on Fodors.com and took a chance. The fact that I had to show up at one stop then ride a bus all day was the icing on the cake plus got to the major sites and a boat cruise with light lunch. I can not say enough good things about our tour guide Nick and our driver Tony. Nick was fun and energetic which was especially nice since we started early morning. He told us funny relevant side notes and kept everyone together which was no small feat. He was extremely accommodating to the elderly veteran who was in the group. Highly recommend this tour and the Nick! well worth the money.
Christopher our tour guide was absolutely over the top excellent. Between his professionalism, his attention to detail to tell us EVERYTHING we passed by, his incredible in-depth knowledge of history, and his patience and attentiveness to difficult other tourists made him a pleasure to be with. I would highly recommend you ask for Christopher!
Our tour was a great experience. The guide, Nick, was informative and entertaining.
I found the memorials to be much more interesting when symbolisms used in the designs were explained.
Excellent choice. Tour Guide Nick was absolutely fabulous. Made the tour very enjoyable.
Highly recommended. Very comprehensive if you don and #39;t have a lot of time in DC
Great tour and the tour guide Chris was funny and knowledgeable, and the driver Tony was a great as well.
This is a full day tour. Our guide was excellent and had a great sense of humour. We were let down by some of the group members not returning on time a couple of times . Because we visited most of the tourist sites it was quite intense and if you have longer it would be better to do the tour in 2 days.
Nick was an awesome tour guide! so knowledgeable and fun! Viator was a good choice again
We did the VIP tour of Washington which included most of the monuments, the capital and the national archives. Nick was the guide on the tour bus and was excellent. He was informative, articulate and entertaining. The tour of the capital was not very good. Nick actually gave us a lot more information than that guide did. We thought it was very worthwhile and would recommend it
Fantastic tour. Amazing sites, friendly and extremely knowledgable guide and just a brilliant insight into the US capital. Will recommend.
In all I'd give this tour an A rating. We had a visitor from Italy that we took on the tour. The tour covered a lot of ground and was very enjoyable. It was especially nice because we did walking, bus and boat which broke up the day. The tour guides are very informative and try to make it fun. Note, you will be handed off to different guides throughout the day. There isn't much time at each stop just enough to take a photo and move on. Remember to order your lunch at the check out screen in the special instructions box. There are no prompts and I did have to call to get our lunch ordered after the tour was confirmed. It was very hot the day we toured and there was plenty of water bottles on the bus.
